An opossums diet includes, fruits, berries, insects, crayfish, small rodents, carrion (dead animal flesh), and even human garbage. Plants living here. When the first Georgia settlers arrived they cleared the land for farming. The most common crop grown at the time was cotton. The absence of trees and

overfarming led to erosion. This caused the valuable topsoil to wash away and leave the famous Georgia Red Clay. Pine trees grow well in the Georgia Red Clay. Unlike most trees they don't need as much water or sunlight to survive. Today farmers grow pine trees and sell the wood. Other trees that are common in the Piedmont region are the oak tree and the hickory tree.

Rivers of the Piedmont There are two main rivers of the Piedmont region - the Flint River and theChattahoochee River.
